June 2022

This June 2022 NSE Shout-Out goes to Señora Delores Flores de Valgaz, from Summit School in Salem, North Carolina!


Student Nomination: “Señora has taught me so much & is the kindest, sweetest soul ever and she deserves to be recognized for it.”


Karen Sohmer (a colleague), adds, “Delores has been teaching at Summit since the fall of 2000 in both our Lower School & Upper School divisions. Also, she has served as an advisor, a mentor, a tutor, and assisted with our Summit Summer program. I can't say enough about Delores -- we adore her & feel so lucky to have her at Summit! Her energy, excitement & passion for teaching manifest in her high expectations for students. Partnered with compassion & respect, she motivates and encourages students to take positive risks, deepen their knowledge, and apply their learning. Delores brings authenticity, grace, and a willingness to learn & grow to our Summit community. Having a student nominate Delores is not surprising because her students and colleagues love her!”


Thank you, Señora Flores de Valgaz, for everything you do for your students!


¡Todos a una! Todos por um!
